Question Modestly asking for help with a Random Number Generator project

Alright so here is what I am trying to do. I want to click a button that will generate a number between 1 and 100 and then, I want the number to be displayed on the screen.

I also want to create conditional text depending on the number. For instance, if the random number generated is between 1 and 19, I want it to say a specific sentence after the number is displayed. If the number generated is between 20 and 40, I want a different sentence to be displayed.

I have been watching the MIT tutorials and trying to figure it out in the block editor to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Create a label in the Screen Designer: Label1
In the blocks editor, drag out Screen1.Initialize block and put a [Label1.Text to ][random integer ](1,100) block inside.
When you run the app the number will display.
To have different messages display, you need to learn how to use the if and if-else blocks and how to form the blocks for the condition (true or false).

An example of the blocks needed for a number between 1 and 19 would be:

[if condition]([and][Label1.Text >= 1][Label1.Text <= 19])
[Label2.Text to ][ text "this is a small number."]
